Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Lists the Estate That Inspired “The Conjuring” Franchise

Credit: Blueflash Photography

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty proudly brings 1677 Round Top Road to market. Listed at $1,200,000, the c.1826 home that inspired the horror franchise “The Conjuring” is one of the most well-known haunted houses in the United States. The property is represented by The Blackstone Team of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

Legend has it, the home is haunted by the presence of Bathsheba Sherman, who lived in the house in the 1800’s. To this day, countless happenings have been reported. The chilling stories, incidents, and recollections of residents and visitors of the property have been told in dozens of media productions including books, movies, and television shows.

The critically acclaimed original movie was based on accounts taken from inhabitants of this fourteen-room farmhouse. Many qualified paranormal researchers have been invited into the home – most famously Ed and Lorraine Warren, who founded the oldest ghost hunting team in New England. In the 1970’s, the Warrens were hired to rid the home of its evil. They have confirmed that the events depicted in “The Conjuring” franchise did transpire.

Currently, the full functioning restored farmhouse in Harrisville is rented overnight to paranormal researchers, ghost hunters, and folks of the like. Day events, tours, and live streams comprise the numerous ways that the sellers have created an income-producing property. The true potential though is awaiting the next caretakers.

“This is the power of the Sotheby’s Brand,” says Ben Kean, Junior Partner and Sales Associate of The Blackstone Team. “Representing and marketing this type of property takes a professional with experience and expertise.”

According to Ray Mott, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, “1677 Round Top Road is a property with such a fascinating background, and we are pleased to have listed this interesting home.”

Agents of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, some of the most consistently recognized high-end specialists in the luxury market, value the unique.

“The “Conjuring” estate is an intriguing offering in northern Rhode Island. We are happy that The Blackstone Team has listed this property with such noteworthy historical significance,” adds Judy Chace, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

Ben Gugliemi, Sales Associate of The Blackstone Team adds, “We are thrilled to be selected to represent this historic one-of-a-kind property.”

Located on eight acres, the home is just over 3,000 square feet and features three bedrooms and one- and one-half bathrooms. Interested parties must provide proof of funds for in-person viewing of property and sign an NDA for release of full property financials. Please contact Ben Kean 401-954-3965 or Ben Gugliemi 401-339-7966 for more information. Detailed pro forma available upon request to qualified buyers.
